Environment and Development - GEOP831

This unit explores historical and contemporary approaches to international environment and development issues. Through a series of case studies, the unit investigates the consequences of discourses, agreements, events, actors, social movements and processes concerned with global environmental change. Students will gain an understanding of the significance of international processes in shaping uneven environmental and development outcomes, and will develop analytical, communication and negotiation skills appropriate to diverse contexts; students will also have the opportunity to participate in a role play. Some of the issues considered include climate change mitigation and adaptation, disasters and humanitarian crises, biodiversity conservation, deforestation, water and sanitation, and waste.
